A Letter from the Principal…


Dear Arcadia Family Members,


On behalf of the faculty and staff of Arcadia Elementary, we welcome you to the 2018-2019 school year.  With a growth mindset and a commitment for success, this will be a fantastic year for the entire Gator family.


I am honored to serve as principal of Arcadia, and I look forward to getting to know you.


Although new to Arcadia, I have worked in Spartanburg School District Six for thirteen years. During this time, I served as an assistant principal at West View Elementary and as principal of R.P. Dawkins Middle School. I am grateful for the relationships made and the work accomplished at both schools, and I will bring those positive experiences with me as we begin our work together at Arcadia.


We know a strong partnership with you will have a positive impact in your child’s education.


As partners, we share the responsibility for your child’s success. The ability to build strong, positive relationships with our families and community stakeholders will be essential to achieving our goals. This year we will plan opportunities to come together, to learn from each other, and to celebrate our successes. Your input and participation is very important to us!


Again, welcome to Arcadia Elementary, and to the 2018-2019 school year. If I can ever assist, please do not hesitate to contact me.
